Re: Budget Brands

Earlier this year I bought a Trespass breathable jacket for £40 and a Gelert pack-away breathable jacket for £15 and I've found both to be excellent. Both a well made, have a decent level of features, have kept me dry in some of the harshest rain and wind Scotland has to offer and seem just a breath...

Re: Glenshee 4 - My annual target achieved in August!

Good to see what I missed anyway. I started doing these four last Monday after all the weather forecasts promised a decent day with high clouds, lots of sunshine and only the slight possible of the occasional passing shower. That actually translated to a decent day with high clouds, some sunshine an...

Re: Looks Like Rain

Exellent, now I've got "I'm just a little black rain cloud, hovering under the honey tree, Only a little black rain cloud, pay no attention to little me" and "tut tut, looks like rain" going round and round in my head.

It's going to be a long afternoon.

Re: Overnighter in the Northern Cairngorms from the ski centre

Glad I noticed this report - I'd been looking at maps this past weekend planning a similar amble, albeit less ambitious. This certainly helps and stokes the enthusiasm.

Brilliant pics by the way - 26 especially.

many midges?

Re: Ben More and Stob Binnein

The youth of today...I don't know. :wink: What is it with you youngsters that you have to do everything at break neck speed and compete with everyone at the same time - whatever happened to taking things slower and enjoying them all the more ? :lol: :lol: That's a good line, I think I'm going to us...

Re: Ben More and Stob Binnein

Yeeks Kendal Mint Cake- disgusting!!!! Help the Scottish economy and buy a scone or some tablet :lol: I must confess I am not averse to a a piece of tablet on occasion.

Re: Ben More and Stob Binnein

Lovely lovely photos Frogwell. I like the ones with the cloud patterns on them. Impressive timings on your walking, did you have a massive Comrie scone as fuel???? :D Still haven't sampled the scones yet. I'm afraid such a display of wanton excess may not be in-keeping with the whole spirit of the ...

Re: The Hills Have Sighs...

We had managed to evade the rain all day but the sky was getting dark it was about 16.00 ish. Since you seem to have evaded the rain, I feel my chuckles at your misfortune were wasted now. You're a sick man Frogwell!!! First you insult Scotland's oldest royal burgh and then laugh at its inhabitants...

Re: The Hills Have Sighs...

We had managed to evade the rain all day but the sky was getting dark it was about 16.00 ish. You must have been lucky, I suspect it was trying to hunt you down. I read your post on that other thread saying you were going up Glen Lochay on Monday. I was up Ben More at the same time and I could see ...

Ben More and Stob Binnein

Due to an optimistic weather forecast on Monday I thought I might find a hill to amble up, so I looked at the maps for things that were localish and picked a handful out. Since Monday started off quite windy and promised to stay that way I figured it was a day to do something quite steep as the wind...

Chances are you were near its nest, or it was trying to prevent you going near its nest.

Or it may just have been an irritating bugger.

Lots of good places along the The Tarmachan Ridge, or even near the summit of Meall nan Tarmachan.
